Halton Conservatives keep our word- we want to cut the cost of politics in Halton

Councillor Peter Murray and my Conservative colleagues on Halton Council have been showing what we mean by our pledge to “cut the cost of politics in Halton” by calling for a freeze on councillor allowances.

We pushed for rises in councillors’ allowances to be shelved for the next three years, instead of current plans to suspend rises only if the Labour-controlled council’s staff pay does not increase.

The people of Halton face a real choice on Election Day. We want to cut the cost of politics in Halton. Others clearly do not.
